Eddie Peake (born 1981) is a British artist. His varied artistic vocabulary encompasses performance, video, photography, painting, sculpture and installation. Peake's main focus lies in the lapses and voids inherent in the process of translating between verbal language and nonverbal modes of communication. It is in the discrepancy between words and any other language, say, images, emotions, bodily movements or sounds, that his art is located. Peake's work is an often-energetic spectacle in which the absurd and the erotic each find a place, and in which the artist plays a central role.
